 FIND OUT HOW EDDIE JUDE HAREVEN EXPANDED THEIR* BUSINESS WITH THE HELP OF YES

Eddie Jude Hareven is a Toronto-born/Montreal-based Conflict Management & Resolution Trainer, Mediator and Coach who works with local community organizations and small businesses. 
Eddie’s business journey began over ten years ago, doing facilitation and program development in the social services sector. They noticed the lack of resources available on the subject of conflict management, and how that was negatively affecting groups who were trying to do important work together. 
Eddie's goal is to educate and empower people who work together and to support them in developing their skills in conflict prevention, management and resolution. Through EJH Conflict Management, Eddie offers customized trainings, one-on-one/group coaching as well as group mediation.

Even though Eddie has been running a business for two years, they connected with our Business Coaching services in the spring of 2018 through a recommendation from a fellow friend and fellow entrepreneur. “I was struggling with my confidence and ability to really put myself out there,” Eddie says. “Working with YES has taught me how to get clear about what I do, and has provided me with tools to help sustain and grow my practice.”
“My clients are people who want to change the world; who have big goals and therefore need these skills in order to stay strong and connected as a group,” they said.  “I get to work with organizations and businesses who are doing amazing things and I feel proud being able to support them in a skill building process that encourages personal and community development, as well as group longevity.”

The next step for Eddie? “Right now I’m in the process of developing new training materials and hopefully creating my first e-course”.

LEARN HOW TO SHARPEN YOUR ELEVATOR PITCH
 
If the span of a short elevator ride was all that stood between you and selling your business to your dream client, investor or partner, what would you say?

That's the idea behind an "elevator pitch" — a short, persuasive speech that allows you to explain the essence of your business in less than a minute. You never know who you're going to run into, or where, so a smart entrepreneur needs to have their sound bite ready!
